Fuji zooms ahead

Life & Style Weekend - - STUFF - With Ge­off Egan

MEDIUM-sized cam­eras are get­ting more pow­er­ful with ev­ery re­lease. Fea­tures from top-end DSLRs are trick­ling down but so are fea­tures from smart­phones.

Fu­ji­film’s lat­est, the X-T20, might only be a small pack­age but it comes with some of the fea­tures of the top of the line X-T2 cam­era. It also has a touch screen on the rear mean­ing you can fo­cus on spe­cific ob­jects by just touch­ing the screen. Like a DSLR though, the X-T20 can switch lenses and has a viewfinder if us­ing a live screen isn’t for you.

The X-T20 can also be used re­motely through an app that can be down­loaded onto smart­phones or tablets. Sim­i­larly wire­less trans­fer lets you get photos and videos from the cam­era to a com­puter with­out plug­ging any­thing in. Aus­tralian price TBA.
